First two weeks of class, who are all these 9th graders?

I have made it through two weeks of class and I am really loving it. Granted I'm only taking one class, but I really like being there. I also found out that in order to get financial aid I have to have 4 credits and not just 3 so I've added a practicum credit working in the child development lab on campus 3 hours a week. I get to help in the toddler room, I'm looking forward to it.

I also feel a million years old on campus. There are all these 18 year olds walking around in their pajamas and it dates me quite a bit.

I am leaving on Friday morning to attend a Suzuki teacher class called "Suzuki Principles in Action" in Steven's Point WI. The class it two days long and focuses on how to improve your teaching. After the class I will be starting a year long mentorship program with Pat D'Ercole. We will be filming our teaching and then discussing it with Pat and two other teachers in the program. I am really excited for what this year will bring for my teaching. I feel like I'm on the edge of something really big and this year is going to be an amazing journey.

I'll bring y'all back some cheese.....
